Yesterday was a fitting day to blog about blogging and that was when I began this post. Why was it such a day? There were a number of reasons:
1. Blog Friend ‘Catch-Up’
Yesterday ’twas the day I met the wonderful Winston from The Hungry Excavator! I’ve met a blogger or two in person before but he’s the first from the Melbourne foodie community so it was a momentous occasion :D. And where better place to meet than over food right?
A Middle Fish review is in the works so I won’t comment on the food in this post but rather on the company :). It was truly nice in the midst of the busy-ness of preparing for exams, assignments and essays to ‘catch-up’ in the flesh with a friend you’ve only known through words and photography. Blogger-real-life meet ups are perhaps one of the most satisfying kind of encounters because in many respects, you’ve already caught glimpse of the person’s life and personality and given that you will tend to have a few things in common already (in this case, uni student and food blogger/lover amongst other things), there’s less awkwardness and you can speak to things that you’d probably not get into detail if meeting anyone else for the first time. Awesome :D.
2. Snail Mail
A belated birthday gift I got in the mail from my S’pore blogging sister! Love you long time, Ange <3
3. New Domain!
I took the plunge and got hosted. Reasons why and how are probably for a post after exams but for at least the next 24 months, I’m the owner of amelbournegirlatheart.com :). Still a few things to be done around here but I’m quite happy with the move :). Not sure if previous subscribers will get updates so please resubscribe if you would like to – thanks!
4. Photo A Day April Challenge Complete!
I guess this isn’t really a reason to blog about blogging but more a reason to blog full stop lol (as are the other reasons below). Was lots of fun and challenging at times but I really enjoyed seeing what other people took photos of according to the prompts. I’m not sure if I’ll be joining in this month with the assessment that I have ahead but if you are after the May list, see @FatMumSlim. My complete Photo A Day April Challenge photos can be found here.
A song that just puts you in a good mood :).
The best Frames app that I’ve come across so far ($0.99 AUS).
7. I miss it.
Blogging, that is. It has always been a way to creatively express myself and I always feel better when I get my thoughts down in words. So, yes.
OK, better get back into the studying!
Question: Any thoughts on the new site? Did I make the right decision?
